Pregnant with dc3, we have had first scan and decided not to find out at the next one what it will be but as have two boys, considering it could be a third boy.
Any suggestions for names to go with William and Samuel please? We like traditional and strong sounding names...

My first thought with those two names would be James.
Others that go:
Edward
George
David
Robert

You're statistically more likely to have a girl as the probability of having 3 of the same gender is quite small - 12.5%!

Most boys and girls names would go well with your boys' names. What names do you love?

Pip, that's not quite right as the OP already has two boys, so the chances are quite high of having a third boy.

Ok, but surely not more than 50/50?

Thomas would go well. I also think Arthur, James, Joshua, Benjamin, Henry or Edward. All nice, classic and timeless like your first two.

What are you thinking for girls?

James or Jamie, and Oliver, all work well when they are inevitably shortened too. Congrats on the pregnancy btwsmile

I know brothers called William and Samuel, their little brother is called James (Jamie).

Peter or Toby would be nice too.

I would say Edward, but that's because I have an Edward and a Samuel! I think they go with William. Congratulations!
